Amil Dravid

Summary of Research

My research is in artificial intelligence and computer vision. I am driven to understand and transform visual representations of the world around us. In particular, I am interested in causal inference and explainability, domain adaptation/generalization, generative modeling, and self-supervised learning, specifically in a vision context.
